My research focuses on reconstructing the evolutionary history of complex adaptations. Population genetic and phylogenetic methods can be used to dissect how natural selection has brought about these traits. Quantitative evaluation of natural genetic variation combined with phenotyping under greenhouse and field conditions uncovers how allelic differences among individuals relate to functional variation, important for plant productivity.
